That camel clearly wants to impress his friend the donkey!
USA portions are ludicrous. OH and I were in the Big Ben national park in Texas at and RV and motel pace in 1988 and booked for a 4 hour, start at dawn horse ride to see the Rio Grande and the hills to Mexico so needed fuel. Being a fan of cowboy film and curious about "grits" I ordered the cooked breakfast. Came on a huge oval plate about 18" wide and piled high with bacon, egg, sausages, beans, hash browns, mushrooms, tomatoes, grits (which are disgusting) and toast. I ate a normal human portion - English breakfast size. Chappy came to clear the plates and asked if I was ill. No thanks, just full.
Stick with us a week or two and we'll soon sort you out, he said. I don't think so. Every other customer in there was grossly overweight and half were towing oxygen bottles and/or in wheelchairs.
I'm quite happy for nationally owned museums, libraries, galleries, railways, buses etc to give discounts to pensioners on the grounds that their taxes through their lifetime have funded them. Don't see why private enterprises should do so.
Do think that portions sizes should be a more frequent option in cafés, restaurants etc. Do not understand crisps with sandwiches - or anything else come to think of it..
